Description

SATB and Keyboard (Organ or Piano). Based on Matthew 26, (Liturgy of the Passion) this is a great piece for your small choir for Holy Week. Although SATB the S/T parts double as do the A/B parts, and the texture never rises above two vocal lines. Suitably dolorous and tenebrous in a melancholy waltz time. We think that says it all...

Lyrics

Will you not not with me but one hour?
Stay awake and pray that you may not come into the time of trial.
The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Wait, watch, pray with me.
Wait, watch, pray.
